So some great news! Toru is still on board with us! He came to church this week, and is now part of the YSA here! Boy are they great! Toru really enjoyed church and is looking forwards to his baptism. We are looking for maybe the end of March. We are going to be teaching him about the Priesthood, because we had a good discussion about it as Elder Hann and I taught the Elders Quorum.
Jodie has been flat out busy with preparing well for the wedding. Haven't really been able to teach all that much lately. Elder Hann and I have been keeping in touch with them and sharing spiritual thoughts at the end of their day. Next week should then be the baptism. That is going to be an important week for making sure that she is ready for baptism.
This week overall has been a really great week. Through out the week there have been many of our investigators or people that we keep in touch with who we are trying to help become investigators that have expressed gratitude for our visits. Something that I really tend to over look kand not give myself as much Credit as I should for. There is one family in particular that we call the Edmonds Family. They are a family of 8 and they are struggling you could say. One of there youngest little ones has brain cancer. The Father Jeremy has been difficult in the past to connect to but just recently, thanked for the visits that we give him and his family. Often times these visits are just visits where we sit on the porch and just talk a bit with him. Sometimes he is to busy with taking care of the family. Sometimes I fell like he isn't really listening to us and just seems to stare off into space. But this week we visited him and he thanked us for all that we have shared with him. He mentioned that sometimes he doesn't really seem to respond, but he does think about and it does sink in for him. Now that I look back on it, I can see how it is success, simply because we have made a small change in him. There where many others as well, but there is simply not enough time in the world.
Things are going real well. I really love my companion he is a great Elder!
Stuart is looking good. He sent me a pick. Had a hard time believing it was him to be honest. Daisy seems the usual. Looking for comfort in the least obvious places.
Love you all,
